If the sailing ship had as many holes as the script it could never leave port, but She Creature is sufficiently fun hokum splashing around in atmospheric, albeit familiar, territory.
...all we really want out of this movie is a bad-*** mermaid killin' lots of folks. But we don't get that until the final 15 minutes.
Because Bram Stoker's Dracula was published seven years prior to the events of She Creature, Angus and his merry crew have no excuse for not foreseeing their inevitable fates.
Really cool killer mermaid movie, even cooler. The DVD comes with a Stan Winston commentary!
I remember watching this on TV. The bit of it to be accurate. And I got really interested to watch the full movie as it seemed very good. And I wasn't disappointed. Never seen such a creepy and ugly looking mermaid in my entire life. It looked more like an alien to me. The story was okay. It was a low budget movie but it was quite catchy. Do recommend it to watch.
Fantastically surprising B-Movie that reaches levels of success barely met by big budget Hollywood productions. The acting is well above par, for a film of this ilk, and the casting of Gugino and Sewell really pays off. Each of them has really interesting characters and aren't just flat emotionless voids ready for the slaughter. The horror is both psychological and physical, causing jumps and moments of unexpected uncertainty. The film also does really well at introducing the mythology of the mermaid. Unlike many films, the exposition is broken up and scattered throughout the film, whilst being seamlessly woven into the story/action. It's a unexpected gem that realizes that characters come first, with murder and mayhem second.
I remember catching this late one night and thinking it was great. I had never seen a horror mermaid before (or since, to date), and this film is worth it for the novelty.
However I do think that it was a little too predictable to have her become more hideous towards the end. Why must evil always be ugly?
